MF 1080 issues, looking at buying one!

Ryan Mabee I just got back in from looking at one, and would like to hear what you guys think. The one I looked at is a mutipower, with the duel rear remotes, has a cab and 7200hrs. Its in very good shape, minus a few issues:

1. The rear 3pt will not move up or down. You can use the lever inside and it doesn't seem to do anything. Could this mean the pump is shot? The guy says the rear remotes work perfectly and there is evidence they were recently used.

2. The start solenoid seems to be sticking, it has a new battery in it but it clicks many times before the solenoid will finally engauge. Not a big deal right?

3. Also checking the oil while the tractor is running it seems fine. However when my buddy checked it with the tractor was off, it looks like there might be evidence of some water in it. Possibly a small head gasket leak? or is it possible that it could have been a built up of condensation in the motor. The motor idles and seems to run/drive perfect without any smoke.

Those are the only 3 issues I could find with the tractor, any advice you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated!!
